    Key Points

    When we meet someone for the first time, there is a narrative that happens between us.
    “If you’re interested, you’re interesting.”
    Oftentimes, people in meetings aren’t engaged in the conversation and are only waiting for the other person to stop talking.
    If you make the effort to really listen to your customers, you’ll be able to engage in customized sales because you’ll truly understand what their needs are.
